Listening to Tonies has a cumulative impact on the lives of children.
The National Literacy Trust have researched the important link between audio and vocabulary, their report is here.
“During lockdown, more than half of children said listening to audiobooks increased their interest in reading and 2 in 5 said it made them more interested in writing.”

“Audiobooks help students engage in text and gain exposure to more words, ultimately improving vocabulary, comprehension and critical thinking skills.”
Kimberley Moran, Senior Editor at ‘We Are Teachers‘
“I introduced the Toniebox into my nursery. As a teacher in Early Years, I read to them everyday, but the Toniebox has been such a benefit to have in class, as they love to hear stories throughout the day.”
Miss Sophie Grant, Granton Primary School, South West London
“ Tonies are fantastic for those children who can verbally construct a story but do not yet have the literacy skills to write it down. We are always looking for creative and innovative ways to record the children's learning and ideas. ”
Mrs Clare Wright, Porters Grange Primary School, South End

Using a Toniebox in Your Classroom
Some children hear over 21,000 words per day, while others hear less than 6,000. That word gap often predicts future success as literacy skills are the foundation for learning. Reading a book and listening to an audiobook are two paths that lead to the same destination.
